Talking TC5 or corrally or........

Hey guys just thinkin what car i want to run in 1/10 TC this year
I was thinkin the TC5 with my 4.5 brushless system but people r tellin me
that the diff's wear out or melt real quick, and that the front end can get pretty loose in the ball cups aswell, guess the question is to the people
who run the car is, have many of u come across these problems?

I have been runnin an MI2 up until recently, and now my bank account can't keep up with the amount of belts i go through!! also just wouldn't mind an upgrade!!!

What about the coroally rdx phi anyone had any first hand use with one!
what did u think!

Cars to consider:

Corally PHi
Tamiya 416
Hot Bodies Cyclone (although I think a replacement is Due)
XRAY 2008

All are good cars. All go well.

ill 2nd that, they are a very strong car when it comes to putting a modified brushless in it, although they are out of date now *i think* the xray t2007 is the way to go if i was going to put a modified brushless in the tc
just my 2cents worth, hope you find a car you like

Default TC"s

Hi
I have just upgraded from a Mi2 to a RDX the difference is mindblowing ,first race meeting i used the same tyres from the shuey but had to go up two spring rates front and rear because the car has so much grip,very easy to drive and stock setup works very well.

Cough "Scythe" Cough...

Thats my recommendation anyway, they've certainly showed form of late, and are emerging in the scene as a very prominent figure. I switched from Xray and have been delighted.

Dont hesitate to contact me for more info, i wont clog the thread.

Cheers,

Robbie

Also consider the Serpent S400. Quite a few race them at Sydney Model Autosports (I am building one now).

The only thing they have in common is they are both made in Holland. You are right though, they do look similar, four wheels, belt drive, suspension, almost identical .

Not sure about the Phi, but alot of guys who own RDX's put Tamiya TRF shocks on.
